Do you mean there is no interactivity or dynamic updates?

Is it? Its large for a web "page", but not for an application. Its 
roughly the same size as the Adobe SVG VIewer plug-in.

Have you considered using Java Web Start. That way your JAR files are 
downloaded just once and cached on the client-side. Also IMHO users are 
more inclined to suffer downloads if they think there is useful 
functionality at the end of it.

If you are displaying images, and you need none of the functionality of 
SVG, why not use the JPEG/PNG transcoder on the  server-side and deliver 
bitmap images - no download for your impatient users ;-)
